Overview

This article outlines the importance of vaccination against tick–borne encephalitis, and the current situation in the Czech Republic. Through the media, health insurance companies are interested in increasing awareness of this form of prevention and of the possibility of reimbursement for vaccination. One of the Czech health insurance companies has been observing the progression of this disease over a period of time, focusing on the level of financial cover in relation to participation in the vaccination programme against tick-borne encephalitis and the age at risk who have not been vaccinated. It has been noticed that participation in vaccination is dependent upon age. The aim is to encourage and support vaccination, particularly in the elderly.

Key words:
tick-borne encephalitis virus, prevention, vaccination, public relations.
